Three million kids have grandparents parenting them today, and there are natural communication barriers between the two. Gray hair meets a sharp fade cut, appreciation of different cultures flies out the window, hurtful words stab at a grandparent trying to help and great memories are missed because arguments explode in a family. Wednesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Teen Behavior Expert Mark Gregston helps grandparents work through the generational gap and helps them remain engaged as he offers practical tips to get through challenging cycles and bridge this gap in his new book, Grandparenting Teens: Leaving a Legacy of Hope.
